All,

Thirty-two folks on a joint Burroughs Audubon/Wild Bird Center field trip to
SC found 74 species on Saturday (eBird counts Oregon Junco as a separate
species?!). This trip was notable for the sheer number of swans and for
seeing three species, even though the origin of the Mute Swan is suspect.
The weather was as fine as one could ask for in late November. Complete list
below.

Good birding,
